developed, the way the parties are, tuesday night we are all in this together, boehner comes out the next day, yes, we can work this out, but over time, the reality is still up to very different parties with very different values, very different constituencies, and when republicans starts to get to squishy or a democrat starts to move to the middle, they get pounded on. shawn hannity, rush limbaugh, and shultz, and rachel maddow. i started seeing earlier, getting e-mails from the pccc, which is the progressive change campaign committee, which saw the success of 2010 on the right and said we could do the same thing on the left. there is just more and more movement on the extremes, demanding in the party faithful to stay faithful. we still have primaries and republicans have to figure out a way to avoid todd akins and richard mourdocks. there is no increase in the christine o'donnell vote, the witch vote. the republicans had five seats in the last two cycles for the have sacrificed a seat by nominating sharon engle and christine o'donnell, and now the two this time. republicans are going to
boehner. cut it loose so they can go christmas shopping, senator mcconnell. it's what the people voted for. that's why they voted for me. that's the president talking. we are joined now by nbc's chief white house correspondent chuck todd. thanks for joining us tonight. this was a hot pressure cooker press conference and you were in the middle. let's talk about the president's tactic. it looks like he's got one. here he is sticking out his message of defending the middle class today, sticking to it. he practically dared the republicans to hold tax cuts for the middle class hostage. he went back to that word hostage. let's take a look. >> the other option is to pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. the most important step we can take right now, i think the foundation for a deal that helps the economy, creates jobs, gives consumersty, which means gives consumers confidence they'll have c
's deficit. meanwhile house speaker john boehner has already signaling his willingness to hammer out a budget deal in an exclusive interview with abc's diane sayer, boehner made it clear that he's not open to raising taxes, but he did express confidence he and the president could find some common ground. >>> sources tell abc news that talks are under way for a possible plea deal for congressman jesse jackson jr. the illinois democrat is currently being treated at the mayo clinic for bipolar disorder. the fbi is investigating jackson for improperly using campaign funds for personal purchases, potentially furniture at his home, but he coasted to victory tuesday, retaining his congressional seat, despite virtually no presence on the campaign trail. the only involvement, a robo call. had. voted since june 8. and missed every one of the 225 votes since. that goes to show his strong contingency there. >> absolutely. >>> a look at your friday forecast, a big storm in the rockies with blizzard conditions and up to 2 feet of snow in montana, idaho, utah. showers along the california coast. some light
think john boehner is going to do a good job as speaker and we're going to get stuff done and it's going to be good for the country because i think boehner is thinking first about how do we make this country better and i think it's going to be good for the country. >> i hope you're right. >> why don't you go work with him. together you could make things happen. john feehery, i hope you get a job with that guy. you and him would be great. bob shrum. >> great to see you. >> i always root for boehner do the right thing. dirty, angry money. the dog that didn't bark this election. what did the sheldon adelsons get for their hundreds of millions of dollars in tv advertising. >>> here is a tweet from alec baldwin. you know your party is in trouble when people ask did the rape guy win and you have to ask which one. didn't merely embarrass republicans, exposed them. it shows too many of them think like they do. that will cost them the white house again and again and a lot of senate seats this time and next time. >>> now, what president obama has won re-election and can't become a one-term preside
working across the aisle. yesterday john boehner said he would work. and harry reid mentioned he likes to dance but can fight. >> the american people have spoke yen they reelected president obama and again a republican majority in the house of representatives and there is a man date in yesterday's results it is a man date for us to work together on the solutions and challenges that we face as a nation. >> the american people us to work together . i know how to fight and i know how to dance. i don't dance as well as i fight but i would rather dance any time. the way to get things done to work at this time. we need republicans to help us. i repeat to have the leader of the republicans in the senate say his number one goal to defeat obama and that's how we legislated. >> steve: that was two days ago. come on and smell the poll results. say we hold a majority in the house of representative and so we have a man date as well >> gretchen: this is what the american people are so tired of. listening to the back and forth and back and forth and nothing gets done. nothing gets done. if you want m
not sure they're totally getting the memo. i have speaker boehner talking about the fact that as they approach january, they're not going to vote for anything that puts additional tax revenue on the table. if you are in fact right, which i believe you were, that could be the number one takeaway beyond demographics. then you look at the tea party element, you know, only 4 of the 16 candidates endorsed by the tea party expressed one in this election. so they should be able to marginalize that element, not simply cave to it at every turn. >> but is it at 134 level, richard they delusional politics, i think it was bush in '88, not reagan. but isn't it delusional when they say, no we're not going to raise taxes when in fact if the tax cuts -- the bush tax cuts expire, it's the same thing? i mean, is somebody going to send them a memo that you don't have the same climate you had last year, because all the president has to do is let the bush tax cuts expire. >> there are three cards on the table, two of them republicans cannot stand -- letting all the tax cuts expire, and these
seize the feature together. >> you have speaker boehner. >> let's do the right thing together for our country. >> you have to do this. >> i have never been more hopeful about our future. >> i know a lot of you are already on my side. >> i have two strong words for you. >> fiscal cliff. >> come on. >> oh, okay. all right. >> the fiscal cliff clock ticks on. >> it was the most expensive political election in history. >> i big, fat, zero. >> some soul searching about the featu future of the party. >> you think i do this night after night for your amusement? >> how do you repay me? >> four more years of hope and change. >> today republican ares battled with republicaned over why they lost an election they were sure they were supposed to win. we know they will never figure it out. today was the president's first full day at the white house. >> in the coming weeks and months i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together reducing our deficit reforming our tax code fixing our immigration system and freeing ourse
're starting from square one, apparently. john boehner today, he wants to not have any grand bargain before the end of the year. wants to do this -- they're just buying time. it will be interesting -- i'll be curious to see how the white house now reacts. you've got boehner and mcconnell, boehner is playing good cop, seems more conciliatory. mcconnell less so. mcconnell has a political squeeze happening on him because he's up for re-election in 2014. two things he's worried about. one is a primary challenge. two, ben chandler, great grandson of happy chandler, long time kentucky democratic name lost. suddenly doesn't have a house seat anymore. he might be looking for something to run for in 2014. >> how about ashley judd? >> well, i've heard the ashley judd rumor. i've also heard her running for governor of tennessee, which democrats are trying to get her to run for. i think ashley judd wants to run for office. that's a serious piece of speculation that's been circulating in kentucky. but -- so mcconnell has to play bad cop here. how is the white house going to respond, push back on this? c
of a change. john boehner will be the speaker of the house, you know, unless something unforeseen happens in the next few weeks. he will be, he will keep the reign. the republicans gained, you know, a few seats, but that's not really going to effect his shot. he ran unopposed in ohio for his own race, and the defining conflict of the republican conference in the 112th congress, this sort of conflict between eric cantor, the majority leader, and john boehner, the speaker, is really behind them at least, you know, from everything that we have seen. the -- so that is remarkably stable, the first three positions. john boehner will be, you know, the next speaker, eric cantor will be the majority leader, and kevin mccarthy will be the majority whip. where it starts to get interesting is for the conference chairman position. this is currently held by jeb hensarling who is making a bid to be the financial services chairman. hensarling has been a sort of rising star for a while within republican ranks. he was a republican study committee chairman which is sort of the top conservative position in r
but democrats as well, the president reaching out to speaker boehner by phone and mitch mcconnell in the senate and to democratic leadership. the president telling them that he is committed to finding a bipartisan solution to some of the tough problems, such as cutting taxes for middle class americans, creating jobs. what's unclear at this point is what else will the president do beyond making phone calls? will he be invoighting the leadership here to the wit house? will they be having retreats elsewhere? what is cloer is already up on capitol hill the loweredship is talking about getting things done. >> by working together and creating a fairer, simpler, cleaner tax code we can give our country a stronger, healthier economy. a stronger economy means more revenue, which is what the president seeks. >> this isn't something that i'm going to draw the lines any lines in the sand. he isn't going to draw any lines in the sand, i don't believe. we need to work together. >> the president said he believes the message that the americans sent in the election is that they want members of congress, both pa
it doesn't matter. the president won the popular vet. the congress is still split with speaker boehner controlling the house. majority leader harry reid running the senate. ed henry covers the white house for us. what do we know about how the president celebrated? >> well, shep, can i tell new talking to his senior aides they are elated about the electoral college and they feel that the president does have a mandate now to move forward. he was sort of keeping a profile. he was in chicago, he and his family got together to come back here to washington. just arrived at the white house a few moments ago. all smiles, of course. he also made a quick stop at his campaign office today to thank supporters and staffers and whatnot. they realize they can't spend so too much time celebrating. his aides say they have to get to work. that's what the president talked about last night in terms of a second term agenda. take a listen. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together, reducing other diversify silt. reformi
. it's good for america to see this. john boehner coming out today. harry reid as well. boehner said, we can't keep setting the bar that low. it is time we raise the bar. i loved what he said about we are ready to be led not as democrats or republicans, but as americans, not as a liberal or conservative, but as the president of the united states. >> that's the quote mark alluded to. you hope in light -- dual messages last night. the country overwhelmingly elected barack obama back to office. more democrats in the senate and the house. on the other side. popular vote very close. obama, up by 3 million votes. very close race. that was a message, not a mandate. so there is a middle ground that you hope they both seek out. because the electorate did send dual messages last night. >> one headline, the divided states of america. it is a little divided. we need some healing, neosporin and a band-aid. >>> yeah. asian stocks tumbled overnight after a steep drop on wall street. global investors are nervous about new forecasts that show slow slow economic growth in europe well into next year. b
to come to some sort of agreement but we have some fundamental obstacles, house speaker john boehner won't accept higher individual tax hikes, and harry reid says asking the wealthy to pay a their fair share is the right thing to do. >> people making all of this money have to contribute a little bit more. >> in case you missed it the president had an emotional moment when he thanked supporters earlier this week. >> you guys have done [ inaudible ] to make sure what i'm doing is approved and i'm really proud of that, and really proud of all of you, and . . . >> you got to love that. the campaign sent out the video as part of a thank you email to supporters. it did, however, also have a donate button. we're back with more show after the break. happy friday, stay with us. >> make some noise for jim breuer! >> go (bleep) in your (bleep)ing hat. >> i knew he needed to get out of the house i knew this would give him so much life. >> (grunting) >> i love getting a rise out of him. >> nice, good job. >> (grunts) >> goodnight, muffy. >> goodnight. >> love you. >> "more than me
, fights breaking out. >>> an abc news exclusive. house speaker john boehner draws a line in the sand two days after the election. saying any tax increase would be unacceptable. the standoff, now, already set, as the president gets surprisingly emotional. >> i'm really proud of all of you. and, uh -- >> in this brand-new footage, released overnight. >>> armed and dangerous. the massive manhunt for the bank robber called the ak-47 bandit. now, caught on tape, holding up banks across the west with an automatic rifle. police racing to track him down before he strikes again. >>> and the surprising revelation from the woman we all know from the dance floor. brooke burke-charvet's surprising diagnosis. the 41-year-old superfit mother of four's new health battle. >>> always nice to see that we are well-protected here in times square. good morning, everyone. robin is on the mend. elizabeth vargas is back. and, boy, so much anger building up here in the northeast. tens of thousands, now, day 11 without power. the utility companies are under fire for that. and gas is still so hard to find for so ma
into hands because we are sick of it. and, you know, what i would like to tell john boehner is don't give in to this craziness. this is nothing but craziness. and i watched harry reid yesterday. you know, he talked and he talked and he really said nothing. then he went on about dance, dance, dance and i thought to myself all you do is dance around with these bills that they send. the house will have a bill, they send it to the senate and what does he do? dances around it and never addresses it. >> host: know by partisanship than for you? >> caller: no, absolutely none. then when he left the stage and was walking off, the man -- i feel bad for him that he just can't get it together -- he grabbed ahold of the flag. he was falling. then he grabbed ahold of low wall and at that point i said uh oh that man needs to go home. he's too old to be there. he doesn't do his job and is collecting a big paycheck. >> host: we covered that news conference. you probably watched it on c-span, go over to the site, c-span.org if you want to watch the entire press conference with senate majority leader harry
and 2008 election. so i think john boehner has some basis for saying that as the president has demanded, so do house republicans. popular vote for house republicans will probably come out something like 50-48, by which obama beat romney. that hasn't been fully tabulated yet. back about 20 years ago, circa 1990, political scientists and pundits said republicans have a lock on the presidency and democrats had a lock on the house. they had all sorts of good reasons why this was so. the democrats picked the lock on the presidency in 1992, republicans broke the lock on the house in 1994. starting with this election, democrats have won four of the six presidential elections and won a plurality of popular vote in another. republicans have won majority in six out of eight elections for the house representatives. so, this is, no, eight out of 10. in the house of representatives. looking back from 2014 them back 20 years to 1994, we will have had during that period or 10 years a democratic president and republican house. two things that people in 1990 said could never happen. so it's something like t
. they differ on the timetable. boehner prefers to wait until the congress is seated. reid wants coming to get the work done immediately. back here, long time congressman pete stark has been ousted by his opponent. he has been in congress important four decades. he was key architect for president's agenda. but his opponent won. two democrats appeared on the ballot because of california's top two candidates rule in the primary election. >> sacramento congressman dan lungdren is behind by 184 votes. he is refusing to give up. mary bono mack in southern california. she 4500 votes behind her challenger. she gained the seat when her husband, sonny bono died in a ski accident a few years ago. >> nationally 20 women will serve in the senate. and new hampshire has all female tell gas station. maine, delaware and washington approved same-sex marriage and in minnesota, a measure restricting marriage only to men and women was defeated. now, the outcome there makes minnesota the first state in the nation to defeat a marriage amendment. indicate renner is in minneapolis. >> jumping down in elation. they ar
elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. >> the president and john boehner are each drawing a line in the sand on letting the bush era tax cuts expire for americans making more than $250,000 a year. the speaker wants the tax overhaul that raises money by cutting loopholes. if they cannot hammer out a spending deal by the end of the year, the nation goes over the so-called fiscal cliff and taxes go up for everyone. an average of $500 per household, and there will be deep, automatic spending cuts that could hobble the economy. republican sandoval the president to address the real problem. the real problem is uncontrolled entitlement spending and a government that has grown massively. >> democrats and republicans will have to compromise just like the president and his party did after getting walloped in the 2010 election. >> would cut $900 million in spending that was painful to us. >> in washington, a high-stakes search for middle ground. brian moore, wbal-tv 11 news. >> there is more fallout tonight for lance armstrong. >> why he has completely decided to cut ties with his organizat
. day. signed, john a. boehner, speaker of the house of representatives. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the order of the house of january 17, 2012, the chair will now recognize members from lists submitted by the majority and minority leaders for morning hour debate . the chair will alternate recognition between the parties with each party limited to one hour and each member other than the majority and minority leaders and the minority whip limited to five minutes but in no event shall debate continue beyond 11: 50 a.m. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. quigley, for five minutes. mr. quigley: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, an estimated 50,000 people die every year as a result of seize years. some of -- seizures. some of these victims are like danny stanton. chicago's mike and mary stanton founded the danny foundation after their 4-year-old son, danny, died from a seizure while he was sleeping. it is dedicated to preventing deaths caused by seizures and raising epilepsy awareness among the public and medical community. that's no small task, but one
party should take president obama up on his offer. you have speaker boehner saying, let's get compromise. this is the time to bring that debt down. we seriously have to do it. i don't think anyone disputes that, but it has to be a mix of spending cuts and the revenue. and the one figure that i'd like to add here is how much revenue we get by just going back to the clinton levels at $250,000 and above. that's $700 billion in tenures. that's what draws people to that number when you add that in and then close some loopholes and subsidies and do the budget cuts, we have already done a trillion. you can get to the $4 trillion that most economists say would at least lead us to the path to reduce debt over ten years. >> because it is so much money and because it would be so relatively painless for people who have income above $250,000 to see that change go back, because bill crystal is saying this now, because the president is clear that's what he's running on, it feels that's clear that's within the realm of the possible. but what else didn't previously peel like it was in the realm of possib
in a public forum by speaker boehner yesterday and harry reid weighing in. phat do you think will happen there? are we going to have an increase in the top rate of taxes in the u.s.? >> well this fiscal cliff looms large. it is no longer a political debate or philosophical debate it is mathematical necessity. the walls of the fiscal cliff, the walls are moving in such they have to solve it. we prefer it would be done in timely and orderly manner so it doesn't disrupt the economy. the nonpartisan cbo, congressional budget office, if they don't address this the gdp could drop 3%, go into negative territory, in other words a recession. unemployment could go back up to 9% and another series of cascading developments. they must address this as soon as possible. i have written a letter to the president and congress on behalf of our organization to say, make a modest extension so you can buy yourself some time and tackle in comprehensive and structural way including spending reform which will have to include entitlement reform and tax reform in a way pro-growth and need be, lower rates and broaden th
'm encouraged that speaker boehner is making some conciliatory comments. >> stephanie: here is john boehner yesterday. >> there is a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to any challenges that we all face as a nation. >> stephanie: now? now you are going to try to work -- this just make you shake your head having been in the trenches there for the last few years. >> it does. one thing that will change the dynamic is for all of those in the gop leadership who's soul reason for being seem to be denying the president to second term, stop him from accomplishing anything if they could. obviously that motivation is gone. so hopefully that will make them a little more willing to come to the table. i was a little bit struck by something when the speaker talked about this being the president's moment -- the president's time. it seemed to me that this is a shared responsibility. he should be saying, rather it's our time to come together and make this happen rather than we're going to wait for you, mr. president.
in the house will she stepped aside and looks pretty clear that john boehner is still going to be the speaker. i think actually the democratic pickups that may have emboldened the democratic leader pelosi to stick around, and actually i think this how women and minorities are much are believe the majority of the caucasus as well something she celebrates openly. but i think the question is for speaker john boehner who is last 45 days between a rock and a hard place. a lot of new members who i actually know lecture him when they were candidates about how republicans went back on their pledge in 2010 to hold the line on debt and retail obamacare. of course the second was largely out of control but the majority of the republican class found the tea party label as a liability voted to raise the debt limit. we may not have that kind of welcome were going forward in 2013. and i was struck when speaker john boehner said yesterday the higher tax rates are unacceptable to him. with all due respect it's not really his choice anymore. what's different about this environment is fax the tax rates, the bush
centralized in the leadership. so i do think that if you got say obama and boehner or romney and reid together with a relatively small number of people, you could exercise some pretty serious presidential leadership even with all the other thing going on in the country we talked about. >> rose: tom just joined us. go ahead tom. >> i'll just add to david's point i think when jon meacham 20 years from now writes the biography of president obama for his term there will certainly be a chapter that will be titled how could it be that barack obama turned out to be the worst communicating modern president in american history. and i think that's been himself has acknowledge that he had no narrative. i think that part of it was he was reacting to the hillary criticism, he just gives speeches. part of it he was truly focused on the substance of what he did. i would argue that it was not all just this noise thing. they had a very bad communication strategy and operation. there's a way of getting things across and repeating things. the way of explaining things like healthcare in a way americans would und
